Jewish Demographic Policies: Population Trends and Options in Israel and the Diaspora

By Sergio DellaPergola

Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI), November 2011

This book, written by Prof. Sergio DellaPergola, makes recommendations to meet the current Jewish demographic challenges in Israel and the Diaspora. DellaPergola presents the Jewish world with the imperative of putting demographic and population data at the forefront of consideration and policy making. Among the main recommendations of the book are: establishing final borders of the State of Israel; facilitating cultural absorption of non-Jewish members of Jewish households into a Jewish context and promoting a friendlier approach to conversion; assisting with the return of Israelis abroad; the granting of absentee voting privileges for Israelis temporarily living abroad; and reducing obstacles that interfere with the birth of a third and fourth child in Israeli families and developing conditions that may facilitate Jewish family growth in both Israel and the Diaspora.
